Excellence Award Programme 2022
We want to celebrate, recognise and share your ups and downs, the successes and hard work you put into your business with everyone.
The Essence of Bed & Breakfast Award will be a stand alone category. You may choose to enter just this Award category or a Business Award category and this category.
Donna Brooke, President, said about previous years entries:
"I have never been prouder of being a part of the NZ B&B community than I was reading the entries. The incredible care and hospitality shared with guests to their homes was inspiring"
2021 Vision Insurance Bed & Breakfast Supreme Business Award Winners - Barb & Dave Miliner, Warblers Retreat, said:
"We entered the awards because we have always had the desire to be the best we can be. We felt this was a good way to reflect on what we do, and get some valuable feedback, no matter what the outcome was. It is something we are very proud of, it gives us great confidence and credibility in moving forward. "
2020 Vision Insurance Bed & Breakfast Supreme Business Award Winners - Garth & Angie London, Whakaipo Lodge, said:
"We found it an excellence process to go through as it encourages a review of your B&B and also to focus on and re-think business planning and where to in the future. The recognition we received from within the Association and wider community has been incredibly useful in promoting our boutique lodge and assisting us with strong bookings throughout the year. We would encourage all Bed & Breakfast Association members to enter these Awards – there’s even an excellent mentor programme to get you on the right track. It’s a golden opportunity to benchmark your business against New Zealand’s best B&Bs.”
